Where do I start?

Where do I start to search? I have an older brother that was put up for adoption in 1964 in California. The only information that we have is; that it was a boy, and the adoption took place in California, we believe it would have been in the San Frisco area. We have medial information that we feel needs to be shared. Unfortunately, my Mom died of cancer, and no other family members are willing to share details of the adoption. Where do we go from here?

help for you

You could start by going to the vital records place, and look under the year, and date of the birth, and see on the birth cert. to see what his parents names are.

If the adoption was finalized before January 1, 1984, with consent of both requesting parties, the agency shall arrange contact between the birth parents and adopted adult. The agency shall release the names and addresses of birth siblings age 21 or older to one another if the birth siblings have filed consent.

Can you advise of your mother's maiden name that would have been on your brother's original birth certificate? My husband was adopted in 1964 in Sacramento, (90 min from SF.)
